Then Mrs. Claus told Santa that her Mum was coming to visit. This stressed Santa even more.
When he went to harness the reindeer, he found that three of them were about to give birth and two had jumped the fence and were out, heaven knows where. More stress.
Then when he began to load the sleigh one of the boards cracked, and the toy bag fell to the ground and scattered the toys.
So, frustrated, Santa went into the house for a cup of apple cider and a shot of rum. When he went to the cupboard, he discovered that the elves had hidden the rum, and there was nothing to drink.
In his frustration, he accidentally dropped the cider pot, and it broke into hundreds of little pieces all over the kitchen floor. He went to get the broom and found that mice had eaten the straw end of the broom.
Just then the doorbell rang, and an irritable Santa trudged to the door. He opened the door, and there was a little angel with a great big Christmas tree. The angel said, very cheerfully, "Merry Christmas, Santa. Isn't it a lovely day?
I have a beautiful tree for you. Where would you like me to stick it?"
And so began the tradition of the little angel on top of the Christmas
A group of Pagans in Albemarle County, Va., was recently given permission to advertise their multi-cultural holiday program to public school children – and they have the Rev. Jerry Falwell to thank for it.
The dispute started last summer when Gabriel and Joshua Rakoski, twins who attend Hollymead Elementary School, sought permission to distribute fliers about their church’s Vacation Bible School to their peers via “backpack mail.” Many public schools use special folders placed in student backpacks to distribute notices about schools events and sometimes extra-curricular activities to parents.

Speaking of hockey, I'm quite perplexed over the cable station "Versus" (formerly known as "The Outdoor Life Network" [OLN]). They are supposedly the "official network of the NHL" and yet they never seems to telecast any games. Their broadcast schedule suggests that they should have a game on just about every night of the week, but when I tune in, all I see is fishing and bull-riding. Guys! If you're going to call yourself the "offical network" of a league, then show some friggin' games!
In other hockey news, my other favorite team, the Fayetteville FireAntz of the Southern Professional Hockey League, are about to begin training camp and will begin their 2006-07 campaign on October 27. With a new head coach and several core players already re-signed, it's looking very exciting.
Until next time,

So, stay tuned; I'm hoping to have the unveiling of the new site layout by Samhain (that's Halloween by the way, and is the Pagan New Year, which is fitting for the unveiling of a new layout).

Truthfully, I figured it was time to experiment with something new. So here it is, something new. I'll probably be just as lazy posting to this as I was with the other one.
Until next time (if there is one),
